DAY 30: Mirma and the Cathedrals of the Sea

The scarlet red weals on my brother’s feet that had manifested overnight from the ice bath his feet had taken, made our course of action clear enough. There was no way we would be able to continue on today, tackling a whole 30 kilometres (18 Miles). Our Camino de SantiagoRead More

DAY 26: Mud, Mayonnaise and a Majestic Sunset

I stepped into an oozing marshy mud puddle for the 100th time in the past hour. I lifted my once hot-pink hiking shoes out of the squelching swamp prison with a sigh. You could no longer tell what the original colour was. Behind me, I heard the indignant cries fromRead More

DAY 25: Sunshine, Rainshine

A crackling strike of lightning lit up the campground BBQ area, highlighting the same wooden picnic tables where last night’s boisterous partying must have taken place. Embers of a failing flame warmed my shaking hands that were soaked to the bone from trying to pack up the tents at topRead More

Humayun’s Tomb: Paradise Lost and Found

It was dawn in New Delhi, but already the traffic was entangled, a coil of cars, buses, trucks, tuk-tuks, rickshaws and cows, a crescendo of beeping horns and swerving tires, all illuminated by the blood red sun burning through the indomitable smog. It was India, Day 2. We were standingRead More

Moscow from a Teen’s Perspective

Today, everywhere we look, be it when surfing the internet, flicking through TV channels or watching a movie, we’re bound to come across that common image of the ‘average teen’. You know the one: The constantly annoyed expression, an oblivious nature to everything but the iPod, and earbuds, the passiveRead More

Moscow’s Hidden Stories

We skidded our way across the ice to the base of the towering sombre statues of Cyril and Methodius, the founding fathers of the Russian Cyrillic Alphabet. It was here at their stone feet that our free tour of Moscow was about to commence. Every place we go carries withRead More

The Five Hour Night: Our Embarkation to Australia

I can feel the adrenaline electrifying my skin as we pull into the rent-a-car carpark and step out into the chilling night air. It is only 7:30 pm on this Spanish night but the sun has long set, and it is only the glowing orange lights of Alicante Airport thatRead More
